2011 Grand Cru Henri Boillot
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
Change of register. The finesse of Henri's Caillerets, with the volume and chew of the Santenots, but in a different flavur profile. Truffle and spice enter the fray, still amazingly and rich and pure. Meat and game and supple yet living. Very long. Fantastic example! L&S (Dec 2012)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
(from a ~.34 ha parcel in Grand Maupertuis). A very ripe nose offers up notes of plum, black pinot fruit, pungent earth and plenty of spice influence. There is a relatively refined mouth feel to the medium weight yet powerful flavors that possess outstanding power and punch on the long, balanced and only moderately austere finish. This will need plenty of cellar time but should very much be worth the wait. 2023+ Rating: 93 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Apr 2013)
(from the Grand Maupertuis section of Clos-Vougeot, close to Grands-Echezeaux): Bright red-ruby. Wild aromas of black cherry, earth, pepper and flowers. Silky, rich and graceful, offering full ripeness and harmonious acidity. Most impressive today on the very long, perfumed finish, which features utterly fine-grained tannins and a suggestion of menthol. Rating: 92-94 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Feb 2013)
Clos de Vougeot is a wine that defies categorisation, so much does it vary in style. This is certainly one of the more concentrated examples: suave and polished with lots of perfume and sweet, textured, raspberry and black cherry fruit. 2016-25 Rating: 95 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com (Jan 2013)
